This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Look, its a fine board when it works.
Cons: Obviously you only have a problem when it starts having problems.the board would force PC into the boot loop. Could never shut the thing down without unplugging the thing from the wall. Too bad it broke out of the 30 day warranty. Now I paid over 10% cost to return to this
Other Thoughts: I like to get deals. This felt like one. I'm sorry I bit though. Company is terrible. RMA forms are literally from the Pentium days. I could not in good conscious recommend this brand. I'm sure other people have been quite happy with them. But their returns department is a joke, and their website was down for a couple days on multiple computer. This does not seem like a dependable company. I will go to great lengths to never buy another product from them. Absolutely shameful.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: This is the second card newegg has sent me a faulty graphics card of this type. It isn't me, I know that the computer works fine as the other graphics cards are fairly quiet and working great. Computer has just crashed due to this gpu. lovely. Sapphire, and Newegg are both quite terrible. Seriously, do not buy this card, and do not buy from this company. You will have nothing but trouble. Newegg will bend you over, as they've done on so many ocassions. just wait for your replacement order to turn into a refund, as they increase the price and keep price gouging you.
Other Thoughts: Was testing done on this card at all?
its had a failure rate of 1/3 at this point which I would deem pretty terrible, and newegg has some pretty poor practices which make screwing the consumer over quite easy.
Pros: It wasn't DOA
Cons: The card worked fine for most of the two weeks or so I have been using it, but yesterday it made intermittent buzzing noises. I checked and saw that nothing was affecting the fan blades from spinning and hoped the problem would just go away. Unfortunately that plan didn't work out, now I have to listen to this absurdly, terribly, ridiculously awful racket. Buzzing noise is driving me insane. I've contacted Sapphire support and am awaiting a response.
Other Thoughts: I had trouble with another card I bought from Newegg, where the card would display about 70% of the screen normally but the rest had huge green streaks through it, RMA'd that quite a while ago and I am still waiting for that to come back. Seems like the cards Newegg is getting aren't really going through quality control.READ FULL REVIEW
